With 10,001 pieces included in the set, LEGO-lovers ages 18 and up can recreate Paris’ most beloved landmark, complete with all the intricate details of the real structure — including the Tricolore flag at the top of the tower, landscaping below, elevators, three observation platforms, a broadcast tower, and an office at the top. The tower can also be separated into four different sections, making it easy to move around.
“We wanted to find the ultimate LEGO expression for the engineering and architectural masterpiece that is the Eiffel tower,” says Rok Zgalin Kobe, LEGO Designer. “We followed the structural principles of the original tower as closely as the LEGO System would allow. During the build you’ll uncover interesting, novel LEGO building techniques that bring the tower’s architectural features to life in LEGO bricks.”
The set is priced at $629.99 and will be available at most LEGO retailers beginning Nov. 25. This set is sure to challenge even the most dedicated LEGO fans and transport them to Paris when completed.
